MSCON
Space-saving and easy to use

Six SCON-CA controllers are combined into one unit to save the installation space.

In implementations where many SCON controllers are used, switching to MSCON controllers will reduce the controller installation space to a half or even less.

<Easy Teaching>

When teaching the moving position of each axis, the SCON controller requires that the teaching tool (cable) be disconnected from/connected to each controller one by one. With the MSCON controller, all you need is to switch the screen to change the data input axis, which saves the adjustment time.

FieldNetwork support

MSCON controllers can be connected directly to key field networks such as DeviceNet, CC-Link, PROFIBUS-DP, Profinet, CompoNet, EtherCAT and EtherNet/IP.

<Specification>

  • 256 positioning points per axis
  • Moving the actuator after numerically specifying the position to move to, and the speed
  • Checking the current position in real time
  • Significantly shorter communication time within the controller
    (ca. 1/6 compared to conventional controllers)
Offboard Tuning

The offboard tuning function increases the acceleration/deceleration speed when the load is small, and decreases the acceleration/deceleration when the load is large, to ensure optimal operation settings according to the load.

Vibration control function

The vibration control function has been added to prevent the work from shaking (vibrating) on the actuator slider as the slider moves. The wait time for vibration to stabilize is shorter and the cycle time can also be shortened.

Total travel counter function

The total distance travelled by the actuator is counted and recorded in the controller, and a signal is output to an external device once the pre-defined count is exceeded. By using this function, you know when to add grease or perform periodic maintenance.

Calendar function

The calendar function (clock function) lets you add timestamps to the history of alarms, etc. This information is useful in troubleshooting, etc.
